Beaufort County Budget Posted Online

Beaufort County’s FY 2012 budget, which took effect July 1, has been posted at the Finance Department page at the County website, www.bcgov.net.

Citizens can view the document by selecting the option for “Departments” on the home page, then “Administration,” and “Finance.”   The 2012 budget includes a trim $96.3 M which reflects a 7.6% percent reduction from last year’s original budget. It does not include a County real property tax increase.

County Council Chairman Weston Newton said council is unwavering in its commitment to avoid spending increases. “In these difficult economic times it would be a bad decision to expect people to pay more for services. We are continually reviewing all other options for keeping operational costs down.”
